Just Not Normal

Words... they can add so much meaning

Yet sound
oh evocative one
free of language barriers,
border-free.

And free
is the key!




Just not Normal;

Affeliated with both Not The Normal Sh*t radio
as well as Not normal that sh*t the spectacular seven


A netlabel sprung to bring you some magnificent soundage, uncommon ones, filled with obsure and eclectic moments.

Dive into the realm of experimentalism!

Dip your toes into something different.

No, we're not dead; we just takin a break in

And if you think we’ve heard the best collaboration works yet, then let this one surprise your ears. Mister Vapor (aka the extremely prolific Mystified) joined up with Altus (one of the ambient great netlabelartists). Well fitting in some of the other ‘deep sea dives’ of this months JNN releases this album takes you deeper. Where the wonderful string-drones of Altus meet with the dark-drones of Mister Vapor this is a clash of experimentalism that cannot be missed. We are proud to host...

The color of the sky at 5:57 a.m.; the smell of a dormant furnace, revived; the feel of dusty boxes. Bells, blips, and boooooms. Precipitation is inspiration. Closets are emptied --- long-hidden treasure awaits. Circuit-bent instruments, analog synths, abused vinyl, and field recordings serve as the orchestra on this release. Best enjoyed on chilly nights in low lighting. 'This is the very first of Khate releases to be of free nature' We at JNN have been long time fans of her work, and are ever...

Split, a hype or just a way to get two artists together without a need to work together? Whichever, both Mystified as well as Mystahr show off in these tracks that vary from IDM to drone to noise. All this on a very well chosen theme to leave you with shivers after this intense listening experience.

Synth improv overlaid with some gems from the public domain. Processed answering machine messages - details of a private life, now featureless and divested of form. Taken together, these pieces constitute a meditation on the death of vision, when attainment provokes failure and hope comes to represent nothing more than bastardized nostalgia. Must we believe that everything leads to something? Or may it not be the case that events and people simply fall back into fragments of themselves,...

Celebrating the 50th release on JNN I've invited some of the best (netlabel)artists from around the globe to join this massive compilationalbum. In total 52 artists joined to create the finest in what is available in experimental music these days. Much of what you hear is unreleased work with the exception of a handful. These tracks have been carefully mastered and put together to present to you a 4 CD epic journey into sound. Together with the artwork the puzzle lies ahead to find out what...

It was only natural the two came together after releases on timetheory and treetrunk. Mystahr provided a 40 minute live improv when mystified in his turn touched his drone-fingers on the material. Par takes (perhaps a series in the making) will take you into the depths of sound and drones.

Whereas the material for DANADAX's first LP "DAXSCAPES I" spanned several years, the tracks on the project's second LP reach even further into the past and further into the future. Some of the cuts on "DAXSCAPES II" were made during the time DANADAX's first 2 EPs were recorded (back in late 2004). A heavy majority of the tracks on "DAXSCAPES II" were created during the same sessions for "DAXSCAPES I," (2005 - 2007) and even a few tracks on the second LP...

Digital data has a lifecycle all its own. And oddly enough, the digital lifecycle mirrors the organic. Every digital bit of data experiences: being born; fighting to survive within the world where it finds itself; interfacing with other data or with the physical world; and then inevitably--it ends. It is deleted, forgotten, or lost. Like all organic life, data has a beginning and therefore, at some point, must also experience an ending. The experimental stream of sound on this release is an...

The Dry Well is a dark and emotionally charged work of musique concrete, created by extreme digital processing of acoustic sound sources. The first three tracks ("Two-Thirds God", "Descent of Inanna", and "Under") are based on the Epic of Gilgamesh, a Sumerian legend that may be the oldest surviving work of literature. They evoke ritual, mythic journey, and the transition from the material to the spiritual realm. The last three tracks ("For Want of a...

Ever since I came in touch with the music of Joe Frawley I was instantly sold. That first I heard was Ritual Research on Clinical Archives which was like a potpouri of fushioned styles though an elevated level of musicianship sounded throughout the entire album. Since that time I’ve always tried to keep up to date with his works, but timemanagement is not an easy task. And then there was Angel Boxes; Joe himself wasn’t too certain how listeners would respond to this what I would call modern...

"Electronic voice phenomena (EVP) are electronically generated noises that resemble speech, but are not the result of intentional voice recordings or renderings." The act of capturing EVP activity to support paranormal research is a source of much contention between skeptics and believers.

Live recordings from digital algorhythms. This is generative glitch that walks the far boarders of experimentalism, yet its content is so smooth and delicious. Meandering between the likes of Xenakis and Ikeda, this takes on a journey of its own. And even though this may be the shortest release on Just not Normal, I fell deeply in love with this album; beware as you may too!

From 1967 through 1970 my father, composer Harold Shapero, was director of the Brandeis University electronic music studio. The studio was equipped with a Buchla 100 modular synthesizer, which was at the time the state of the art. Though I was not a Brandeis student, but still in high school, my father allowed and encouraged me to work with the Buchla in the studio. I started working there when I was 14 and continued until I was 17. The portrait you see of me with the Buchla was taken (by my...

You may consider this your after Halloween treat, or just a plain immersive and fantastic album filled with darkness and just plain great tracks!

[sic], the latest endeavor of soft noise/dark ambient blowhard, Controlled Dissonance, is an expression of minimalistic composition. Stripping down to the bare bones, Controlled Dissonance culled the sounds for this release exclusively from field recordings and found material on microcassette. These recordings were manipulated with a transcription device, a handful of effects pedals and a small arsenal of digital effects. The resulting tracks both belie the humble origin of their source...

Post 'post meridien' Dzlav returns with fresh new toys and an even more sophisticated psychedelia unleashing his toys onto the dancefloor of your mind. There is something ever so effective and affective in his tunes, that would bring the quirkey brain to dance of the ceiling.

"It is always so fulfilling to finish up all the little detail work involved in an album. I still havent slept just from pure creative energy. I wont fill this box with too many thoughts but deviants might be interested in the fact that much of this album is inspired by color field painting.

Cezary Gapik (also know as CEZAR) was born in Czestochowa, Poland in 1963. He started his musical activity in 1980 as an animator of punk rock bands. Soon enough he discovered new sounds which were brought by the punk rock rebellion. Cabaret Voltaire, Public Image Ltd. or other “new wave” bands had an enormous influence on the perception of music by Cezar. Plunging into the fundaments of musical avant-garde (Karlheinz Stockhausen, Morton Feldman, Luc Ferrari, La Monte Young), the appearance...

Well since you are reading these words here you are clearly recognizing that the great Phillip Wilkerson has yet done it again. Right before your eyes is the latest experimental release from Phillip that can be regarded as a blessing for your wanton ears. If youâve heard some of the previous JNN releases by Phillip I can but say, the man...

“I live and make music in a flat. We’ve got a lot of traffic noise. I have wanted to use that for a virtual album for quite some time. The album was born by recording from midnight till seven in the morning. The album consists of live tracks. The first four are made entirely from the 7-hour recording (all encoded at 256kbs). The last track is a live recording with additional instruments (encoded at 192kbs). “ All compositions by Respirator Artwork: Juneau Check out our JNN home

6 tracks of minimalist beauty, darkish atmospheres and enchanting sounds. There is a certain mystique about this release; as if tucked away far on the antarctic with but a small friendly fire. The cold breeze snuggling around the cabin comforting the loneliness that one is waited for. A place of envy perhaps it is not, but the chilled sound of 'the last day again' will certainly clasp the listeners ear placing them momentarily in the vast and cold emptiness of white; to remind us once again of...

Like Stream69, Kris Cadwell also revisits the JNN-catalog with a successor to his first album ‘Offerings’ (JNN070). Another beauty and indepth look into the sound of a visual artist exploring not in paint or color, but in tone. The diversity of this artist is remarkable; at times this feels very Boards of Canada when he can also change his cloth and create a beautiful deep field of drones and beatfree song. Kris certainly shows his wardrobe and wears it in style. We’re very happen to...

MindSpiral is a series of collaborations between Mike Metlay and anyone who doesn’t hang up when he calls. This incarnation, mind6Spiral, resulted when Tim Walters (see e.g. JNN03) traded a night’s lodging (10 August 2008) for one hour of feeding audio from his laptop into Mike’s mixer, while Mike added his own sounds and a live audience on StillStream.com listened. It was a fair trade. Mindspiral Tim Walters

The twelve pieces on this album reflect an ongoing interest in the temporal processes underlying musical creation from two apparently contrasting yet ultimately similar musical contexts. Post-modernist, systems-based pieces for traditional classical ensembles stand side-by-side with more static electronic works. In the former category the obvious reference points might be the work of Steve Reich and other minimalists but in contrast to the extended time-scales operative in such work, the pieces...

Exotic sound-scapes from the far reaches of the Whithersoever, a vast multiplicity of universes. Recorded in dynamic Quaquaphonic stereo! Feralcatscan is science fiction, a romantic walk through a dystopian wonderland, that strange array of lights hovering in the twilight, the mad scientist caressing peculiar mechanical finery, the sound of countless worlds falling into oblivion. Using mostly obsolete and reverse engineered technology, this mercurial music ensemble connects seemingly different...

Most of the tracks on Danadax' 3rd EP follow a similar set of rules in their creation. All of the tracks are one takes, most were of a semi-selfgenerated nature. Other tracks are just constant manipulations of a soundfile until it was unrecognizable from its original form. These tracks here are of a minimal atmospheric nature with some tracks closer to noise, but always in an organized form All tracks and artwork Curtis D Cousins (is Danadax)

We all are nothing; and so we shall return. And from that emptiness grew Mtiful; meanderings through the field of experimental improv electronics. This album journeys into the physics of sound and its electronic behaviour, frantically trying to control that which lies beyond our touch. Like the chaos and unpredictability of nature, so this album shares of the deeper layers of life. Dare to dig the soil upon which we tread; dare to dive in the realm of a mad scientist mind called mystahr.

But all good things come to an end, and there where there are endings there are new beginnings. Anime Hill has graciously offered his very first album for a release on Just not normal and we couldn’t be more proud of this dark ambientish but certainly gorgeous experimentalic album.

Another album that was sent to me early March. But it was untill I’ve started preparing this album that I fell deeply in love with the sounds and atmospheres here. As the title of the album suggests, much of its content is based on ice, and no no thin ice in here, but thick and most wondrous layers of ice will subdue you into a parallel world of cristals and frozen water. When at one point the world may have lost its icecaps there will still remain the memory through sound. My suggestion;...

In Greek mythology, Ixion and Tantalus were both legendary for their extreme hubris and the dire consequences that befell them as a result. Each was granted an audience with the gods, and betrayed the generosity shown to them. So many tales abound of the transgressions these two figures made against the gods that there is no one story to explain their unique fates. Yet it is precisely these unenviable fates for which they are most remembered. In its most simple form, the tale of Ixion is that...

Mike Metlay's body of work has always included abstract noisescapes, a passion he's enjoyed for nearly three decades. (A recent example is JNN014, The Redundancy Of Suicide by mindSpiral.) Mike's main noisescaping device is "Thing One", the Oberheim Xpander analog modular synthesizer he has been playing for 25 years now. Currently, as for the past 10 years or more, he uses Thing One primarily for self-modulating noise textures that can be manipulated in real time with broad control...

Hailing from Brussels in Belgium comes Michiel Geluykens aka Candstandy. Early March he nudged me towards his first full album release for a possible JNN release. It needed but a few listens to know this very much deserved a spot on the label. His original idea was to create a dreamlike atmosphere using abstract sounds and motions. I must confess that this turned into a very warm, yet still experimentally edgy result that will guide the listeners ears into a comfortzone with slow drones and...

Producing primarily instrumental music, since 1999, and he also experiments with sound collage. If you frequent netlabels such as this one, then undoubtedly you have been in touch with the music of this collaging meister. His work has been described as "synth-post-pop-punk-psyche-hypno-exotica." For as long as I can remember I have seen his releases from various corners around the...

Of Places and Moments is a celebration of the art of field recordings. The tracks to be included utilized recordings from the Sounds Found Project, a repository of user-contributed field recordings. The source recordings were mangled, manipulated, abused and violated, in some cases beyond recognition, to create 18 distinctly different interpretations ranging from minimal drone, to noise, to electronica.
